Cookies!

Cornflake Holly Wreaths - http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/holly-christmas-cookies/detail.aspx (Assuming you can get these ingredients in your area?)

We actually don't bother with the wreath shape - we just make holly bunches.

OR

Peanut Butter Haystacks - http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/peanut-butter-haystacks/detail.aspx (Again, assuming available ingredients...)

Re: Cookies!

I've made the cornflake wreaths before, they were HARD WORK. I can't get chow mein noodles here (that I know of). Rats.

Re: Cookies!

Hrmmm....

How about no-bake cookies?

Or, can you get bags of the holiday red & green M&M's? We just sub those in for chocolate chips & make holiday cookies that way.

Re: Cookies!

Nope, no holiday M&Ms here, sadly, though I can get regular-ish ones. I bought stuff for the cranberry pistachio bark today, so wimping out with a repeat performance from 2 or so years ago. ;)

I make the not easily massed produced cookies for Christmas. You know, the roll-out sugar cookies, and the roll-out gingerbread? Yep. No easy, and no peasy here. That is on my "after finals" list. Loved your bullets... and here is a spontaneous display of affection: *smoooooooch* xoxox

Re: From Megsie

I make that kind too, but not for the Cookie Exchange, just for US TO EAT. NOM NOM!

Thanks for the bday shout out, Liz! Cookies, I always went with choc chip cookies in Sweden, they were a hit. I cut up dark chocolate instead of getting chips, but something tells me chips may be less rare by now?

Someone always does choc chip, so I avoid that one for the holiday exchange. But you're right, it's easier to find chips now!

The Hunger Games is being released on my birthday! Can't wait!

4 months! TORTURE!

Huh. Quilling looks cool. I looked it up because I thought you might have meant quilting, but no!

Quilling IS cool but it's very fiddly.
